Our Story

 "What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." Jane Goodall.

PAA was created by Selva Calderon, a mother living the modern life with her family of seven in small town America. She searched for a way for her children to live a more balanced life with the earth, so she reached to her Peruvian roots and brought natural beauty from underserved artisans to eco-conscious families like hers around the globe.

This is how Pan American Apparel was born. At our core, we believe the world benefits when we show responsibility to our environment, our children, and the hands that do the work. 


Pan American Apparel is ethical fashion for your little one and the answer to the fast fashion dilemma.
